A fantastic opportunity to aquire a character cottage, in need of some modernisation, nestled within a desirable village location.

The cottage is a charming two bedroom, semi-detached property, nestled within the quiet village of Uploders. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, with walks aplenty, a village pub and just over three miles from nearby Bridport and West Bay, Uploders is a most desirable location. The property itself is approached across a lengthy driveway, with ample space for parking of two cars, as well as a single garage. On entering the property, you come to a useful porch, which has built in storage for coats and shoes, and provides access to the sitting room. The sitting room is of generous proportions, spanning the entire width of the property and enjoying a double aspect, flooding the room with natural light. A large inglenook fireplace, of stone and brick construction with wooden mantle above, creates a bold focal point for the room and is a real feature of the property. A glazed door leads to a rear lobby, providing access to the downstairs WC to the right, and the kitchen to the left. There is also access from here to the garden. Currently the kitchen is fitted with a sink with drainer and base level units below, but is need of a full refit. The kitchen enjoys a pretty outlook onto the garden and towards the countryside beyond and offers real scope for improvement.

With deep windowsills, cottage doors and beams throughout, the cottage has all the character features one would expect of a property of this age. Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor landing. Both bedrooms are a good size, the master enjoys a double aspect, front to back, and has a wonderful outlook across the garden, woodland and hills. The bathroom has recently been fitted with a high quality white suite, comprising a low level wc, ceramic pedestal sink with mixer tap, and bath with shower over. Also in the bathroom is a large airing cupboard housing the new pressurised water tank system.

The property has been completely re-wired and painted by the current owners, with a new Economy 7 heating system and is due to be carpeted on the first floor.

Outside

There is a large garden to the rear, which stretches away from the property and meets the River Asker, making an idyllic spot for a seating area. Currently the garden is gently tiered but has plenty of scope for further landscaping. There is a patio area

abutting the property, making a wonderful viewpoint and a great spot for alfresco dining. The garden is well stocked with mature trees and shrubs and there is also a large stone store. To the front of the property there is a driveway with space for up to two cars, and a single garage which is attached.
